Being a real estate guru and a philanthropist is a life time accomplishment for most, but just the beginning for Adam Milstein. He is a managing partner of the well known Hager Pacific Properties with a $2 billion dollar portfolio in the hundreds of home that they manage around the country. Although he is recognized as one of the top two hundred philanthropists in the world, he is active in much more than real estate. Adam and his wife, Gila, are co founders of their own organization, The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Through this involvement, he gives back to his Jewish community. His work here includes mentoring and supporting students, from all over the world, with getting back to their Jewish heritage. His investments and resources to young Jewish schools have given students the opportunities to learn about their communities as they gain a valuable education. This effort helped his name get added to the Philanthropists and Social Entrepreneurs Top Recognition.
Milstein is also credited for the founding of the Israel/American Council, which was established to focus on and help build better relations between the United States and Israel. He worked to make sure that the Council’s interest was on the relationship of Israel in reference to the American foreign policy. Milstein is very out spoken when it comes to the world wide oppressed population and the protection of the Jewish community. Unlike his philanthropic counter parts, Milstein is a hands on type of person. He was one who chose not to sit in the lead from the board room, or to pass on responsibility to someone else. He engages intimately with the community instead of just writing a check for the work that is needed. He gets no satisfaction from just being one of the many who belong to charitable organizations and just sit sternly behind a desk while others do the work. This really sets him apart from the ordinary. As an advocate for the Jewish people, he firmly believes that they should learn to speak the Hebrew language world wide. He finds meaningful and creative ways to give back to the Jewish community. Adam Milstein is also a writer that contributes to publications of note worthy quality. Milstein is constantly searching for effective ways to do good for his Jewish community as well as people in need of advocacy in every corner of the world.
